Is it possible?

So I am a sophomore in my second semester at community college. Unfortunately due to some legal troubles and having to work my grades have suffered.

I had a 1.75 then did grade forgiveness and brought that up to a 2.7 then last semester I messed up and ended up dropping it to a 2.29 going into my current semester. I am retaking the classes and doing grade forgiveness and am so far, doing well. I even quit my job to focus on school.

My question is, is it in any way possible to raise it to a 3.0? I have the following summer term and after that another fall term until I have completed my A.A.

I have 43 attempted credits with 30 earned. And 34 GPA hours.

    Look for an online GPA calculator. You plug in your data, and the GPA you hope to achieve, and it returns whether or not it is possible/what grades you need to earn if it is.

    From the calculator it seems that it's impossible. But the calculator doesn't factor in class repeats. But upon further investigation it seems universities don't only factor the new grade. It seems like I've dug myself into a hole and it's really getting overwhelming =(
